4 stars Fantastic latin fusion album. DiMeola was truly one of the best of his time, and he's not too shabby even by today's standards. This album shows him at his best really. It features fantastic interplay between Al's guitars, Jan Hammer's electric piano, and percussion, courtesy of Mingo Lewis. Anthony Jackson and Lenny White provide a solid rhythm section. In some ways it still pales in comparison to his work with Return to Forever. Al Di Meola was never the composer that Chick Corea was, and the vamps get boring after a while. Still if you appreciate high energy fusion, this one is a must!
Salviaal | 4/5 |
